Mt. Hakkoda (八甲田山 Hakkōda-san?) is a 1977 Japanese film directed by Shiro Moritani. Based on the novelist Jiro Nitta's recounting of an actual incident of a disaster, the film tells the story of two infantry regiments of the Japanese Imperial Army, consist of 210 men, that tried to traverse Mt. Hakkoda in the winter of 1902, in preparation for the anticipated Russo-Japanese War. The movie was Japan's submission to the 50th Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.[1]
